Introduction: Popsicle Stick Monster Box


Here's a quick, cheap way to package up small monsters for shipping. 

Step 1: Materials and Tools


Materials
Popsicle sticks
Green clay
Shredded newspaper
Wood glue
Letter stickers

Tools
Saw or scissors

Step 2: Monster Arm


Form a monster arm to the best of your abilities (my abilities clearly being limited).  Bake clay at 2750F for about 30 mnutes.

Step 3: Glue Crate


Create Crate

You'll need 2 pieces 2 1/2" by 2 1/2" and 4 pieces 2 1/2" by 6 1/2"
  • Cut popsicle sticks in different lengths
  • Glue together in dimensions mentioned above
  • Glue sticks lengthwise along each side, about 1/4" in from the end (on all pieces except the bottom piece)
  • Bottom piece - Glue a few leftover pieces along the bottom for reinforcement
  • Top piece - Using a popsicle stick as a guide, stick on 'FRAGILE' letters
Assemble Pieces
  • To add something to affix the sides to, glue together leftover pieces of sticks into small stacks (4)
  • Glue each stack along the edges
  • Affix sides to these stacks
Complete
  • Place some newspaper in the box
  • Hook now baked arm over front of box
  • Set top piece on box with a little glue on the back corners - it should be enough to keep it in place
Place box on your desk for a cute Halloween (or anytime) decoration!

    Wonderful! That's a great one-sitting craft project (one-sitting for the kids and their friends).
